This ground-breaking work discusses one of the most turbulent periods in Ethiopian history, 1975 to 1980. During this time, economic measures initiated in the mid-1970s began to take effect and major societal transformation took place. When Ethiopia fell under a military dictatorship and the patronage of the Soviet Union, a revolutionary movement was born. An entire generation of Ethiopian activists came together in a visionary pursuit to form the Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Party. This book chronicles its rise to prominence and its gradual disintegration.
